Black Panther series in development for Disney+ 2/1/2021

Joe Otterson for Variet:

A series set in Wakanda is in development at Disney Plus.

The series is part of a new multi-year overall television deal Ryan Coogler and his Proximity Media have signed with The Walt Disney Company and will include other television projects in the future. Coogler previously directed and co-wrote the hit Marvel film “Black Panther,” which takes place in the fictional African nation of Wakanda. Coogler is currently at work on the film’s sequel.

Okay, technically, this is a series set in Wakanda, but it will be heavily connected to the Black Panther character.

In addition to a Wakanda series, Disney+ also has WandaVision (now streaming), with Falcon and Winter Soldier and Loki coming soon, and in various stages of production are Hawkeye, Moon Knight, She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, Ironheart, and a Nick Fury series staring Samuel L. Jackson.

No word yet on any potential return of Daredevil and co. from Netflix.
